Sad­dened to hear that Sir Christo­pher Lee has died. Nor­mally I don’t com­ment on celebrity deaths apart from the odd RIP if their work has given me some hap­pi­ness. In 2001, I had the plea­sure of meet­ing him at a sign­ing ses­sion with my then wife and 11- day old daugh­ter. My daugh­ter had been quiet in the queue un­til it was our turn. Then she burst into tears and Mr Lee turned to her and said, “She’s ob­vi­ously been watch­ing far too many of my films.” Thank you Christo­pher for all those great per­for­mances and be­ing a cool per­son in real life. Both my daugh­ter, who re­mains a huge fan, and my­self, ex­press our con­do­lences to his fam­ily.

Thank you for all the mo­ments that you shared with us. Thank you for the roles that you played for us, all the songs that you sang for us. And thank you for all that you did for us in the Win­ter War. Farewell my friend, where the night is quiet and the sleep is rest. You will al­ways be part of us.

Very sad to hear the news of Christo­pher Lee’s pass­ing. RIP to a true cin­ema leg­end – I hope he’s on his way to the Grey Havens.

I first saw Scars Of Drac­ula when I was 10. It was the first Christo­pher Lee film I saw and I loved it. I saw Lee in the cape with the fangs and thought, “Yes, that is how Drac­ula should look.” Since then I’ve loved him in Star Wars, The Lord Of The Rings tril­ogy, The Wicker Man and count­less other bril­liant movies. I also lis­tened ob­ses­sively to his

So sad to lose another iconic ac­tor so soon af­ter Leonard Ni­moy. I have en­joyed all the films Sir Christo­pher has been in that I have seen re­cently, such as Sher­lock Holmes And The Lead­ing Lady. RIP Sir Christo­pher Lee.

I can’t re­mem­ber the first film I saw him in. I can’t re­mem­ber the last. I will al­ways re­mem­ber though, that the films I did see him in, he al­ways added some­thing a bit spe­cial. My favourite has to be him play­ing Scara­manga in The Man With The Golden Gun. You shall be missed.
